At Vision, Symantec’s annual user and technical conference, I had the opportunity to speak with many of our channel partners and share more details regarding our redesigned Partner Program. As Symantec continues to grow as a company, we’re planning some exciting changes.

Today, we’re unveiling 12 new Symantec Solution Competencies. These new Competencies give partners the choice to deepen their expertise in a particular solution area, or to extend their capabilities across multiple solutions for broader market traction. By achieving a Symantec Competency, partners demonstrate their insight, experience and solutions-expertise – crucial when solving their customers’ unique business challenges.

We’re also investing more in our partners than ever before. In the October timeframe, partners will have access to richer rewards, based on capability, performance and commitment to delivering value to customers. Through...

The cloud appeals to businesses for multiple reasons as it addresses many of their long standing IT issues. Whether it is lowered costs, faster deployments or just less internal red tape to deal with, businesses are finding the ease and ubiquity of the cloud tempting. One of the newer use cases topping many priority lists is leveraging the cloud for disaster recovery. Have you considered using the Cloud for Disaster Recovery?

The biggest benefit of DR to the cloud is the cost savings gained because there is no longer a need to build or rent a secondary data center. Symantec Disaster Recovery Orchestrator gives businesses the flexibility to affordably and easily initiate disaster recoveries of their Microsoft Windows applications to and from the Microsoft Azure cloud.

Symantec Disaster Recovery Orchestrator delivers the following benefits:

  • Application-based replication and automated, orchestrated recovery between on-premise and Microsoft Windows Azure,...

I'm the Product Manager for Symantec Information Fabric, an offering in development to help you understand and govern your organization’s information. During Vision we are conducting usability studies against our early development systems. This study will introduce you to the concept of Information Fabric and then we will conduct a hands on usability session. It’s a unique chance for you to tell us how you would like to use this new offering and your feedback will directly influence how we design and develop this product.

The session will be about 50 minutes long and will be conducted in the 'whisper suite'. We are looking for attendees who look after or make decisions around:

  • storage / storage management / archiving
  • compliance
  • security
  • records management

and who may have experience of any of the following product sets:

  • NBU
  • Data Insight
  • Enterprise Vault

Hello Vision attendees!

 

I'm the lucky person who gets to work with customers on next generation technology.  My current project is investigating the values desired in a converged data management stack.  What the heck is a converged data management stack?  Well, I've done a lot of research and so I have some ideas, but I need your help to direct me, particularly when it comes to prioritization of those desired values.  

 

The immediate ask is that vision attendees interested in helping me should go to the link provided below and sign up (using your corporate email address) to attend one of my five one-hour session and tell me what you want me to build to better serve you.  But I'm also interested in getting you involved in the project on a more permanent basis so you can provide ongoing feedback as we continue to develop the plan and then ultimately the offering.  

 

I'll need you to fill out an...
